    Never read any of the books, but I still want to give the movies a chance.

    I never read the books.

    Found the movies utterly boring though. Way too "childish", so I really didn't engage with them at all. I didn't care about any of the protagonists, so was unphased by the imagined perils they found themselves in.

    Haven't read them, either, and I have this weird aversion to British children. I LOVE British tv/movies/books, and adult British accents are great (especially women)... But for some reason I'll spend an entire movie of British kids talking with a permanent cringe on my face. I have no idea why.

    So yeah, I was forced to try watching some of the earlier Potter movies and couldn't stand them. But the last three, where the kids are now basically adults, and shit gets serious and gritty and dramatic, I thought were quite well done.

    If you guys wanted to get really engaged with the Hogwarts universe, then avoid watching the first four Harry Potter movies until you’ve read the books. The printed version of the story became popular for a very good reason, and that’s because the books are literally a joy to read. They’ll suck you in.

    The early films are like something you have to endure before you get to the good bits. But if you’re a fan of the franchise they’re an easy watch and you’ll find yourself marathoning right through the whole series.

    Saw Solo this morning. Oof. Pretty underwhelming. Best thing I can say about it is that it makes me curious as to how the original directors movie would've turned out.

    I'm glad I'm not the only one watching this series.
